Failed? Were you paying attention? That was a success.
His plan wasn't to get the operation from the Autobots, his plan was to get the Autobots out of the base so he can steal the other Keys.

I like what EVERYBODY said in response, but I will continue to observe the designation of 'Generation one' as a group in this timeline as an official rehashing of who and what G1 are.
Um, no. Big no. Hasbro has officially declared Aligned a totally new universe, separate from G1. In fact, they've gone on record saying Aligned is even more
detached from G1 than any other universe.

Hasbro said so. That's about as official as it gets.

Here, your responses were even more insightful, but I see a 'code of Hero' in this Smokescreen.It's his OWN code of hero, which he has to learn to decipher properly in the school of Hard Knocks, as Arcee points out to him in said episode, or get jumped by the harsh reality of it in the end.
Like Dinobot, Smokescreen is in danger of finding out at the last minute that his destiny is not how he imagines it, but how he has heard about it from those with similar destinies;
His variation right now is that he will become Smokescreen the Great.The 'choice of Dinobot' he doesn't see is simple: Die for the Autobot cause, or survive to die next time.
Brash young soldier who desperately wants to be the hero of the story is not Dinobot's schtick.

When have any of the relics shown sentience?

Dinobot's story was about an uncertainty if he was fighting for the right cause, if his code of honor was really compatible with his Predacon instincts or Maximal alignment. Dinobot's story is absolutely nothing like Smokescreen's, who is about certainty
that he is a hero destined for greatness. I'm starting to think you've never even seen Beast Wars. Hell, I'm not sure you've even seen Prime.
